Joint meeting of Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland bishops

Press Releases

Added on 19/09/2012

A second meeting of representatives of the Irish Episcopal Conference and of the Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of Ireland took place in Dublin on 13 September last. In the context of most amicable and creative discussion, presentations were offered on:

• The ecumenical and evangelistic possibilities provided by the recent International Eucharistic Congress
• The perspectives of the churches as partners in Irish education on current issues in that area

These joint meetings are held in the spirit of the recommendation of the International Anglican Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission that Roman Catholic and Anglican bishops in individual countries should meet from time to time for prayer, fellowship and discussion of common concerns.
